Maria Reyna
Maria is 68 years old and lives in her own house with her two children. She owns a store where she sells necessity items such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, and other items. She has had the business for 14 years and this has given her the sales experience that allows her to earn more profits. The store is located in her home in town and is recognized by her neighbors in the area. She has many customers since she always has the store well stocked.

Maria wants to expand the store and make a new investment but she needs capital, so she is requesting a loan to purchase the necessary items for the store. She is sure that she will repay her debt and hopes that this will give her family a better quality of life.
